Dressing an ‘olapa (dancer) is done with mindful and creative decisions. Join us for a panel discussion with several Maui kumu hula to hear about traditions they carry in respect to costuming their hālau, what inspires them, what doesn`t, are there “trends” and do they follow them, plus experience each of them taking you through the step-by-step process of dressing an ‘olapa.

The evening is sure to be an interesting look into the insight, traditions, and creativity of a kumu hula.  Participating kumu hula will include: Kumu Hula Kamaka Kukona, and Kumu Hula Kapono`ai Molitau.

The discussion panel includes kumu hula Kamaka Kukona of Hālau o Ka Hanu Lehua, kumu hula Kapono`ai Molitau of Nā Hanona Kulike `O Pi`ilani, and nā kumu hula, `Iliahi and Haunani Paredes of Hālau Kekuaokalā'au'ala'iliahi.
